    "Death of Geo. Gerow - The sudden death of Mr. George Gerow, early yesterday morning, Jan 17, 1906, caused great surprise and sorrow here and also throughout the district. He was in the his fortieth year, of robust constitution and always enjoyed good health, but a cold last week seemed to undermine his strength and early Sunday morning had developed into pneumonia, to a degree causing medical attention. He sank rapidly, however, and passed peacefully away early Wednesday morning. He was a member of one of the oldest and largest families in the county, that of Mr. John Gerow. His life was one of industry and exemplary habits and won for him the goodwill and respect of his large circle of friends. ... Deceased was past master of the Percy Masonic Lodge, by the members of which, joined by those of Colborne Lodge, the funeral will be conducted this Thursday afternoon,leaving the home at 1:30 for Salem Church were service will be held.

After a time he married Miss Thorne, daughter of Geo. Thorne of Warkworth,who survives him with no issue. Mr. Gerow was a member of a somewhat remarkable family, that of Mr. John Gerow of Percy, formerly, now of Castleton., which mumbered fifteen children,all of whom lived to grown up and to be married. Although at the present time only ten of them are living, five of them live in the township of Cramahe and the rest in Manitoba. His mother died in 1870. Deceased was an active member of the militia and to qualify himself for that purpose he attended the military college in Quebec city where he received a first class diploma.
